Gadsden State Community College is hosting Candy with the Cardinals, an event for students, faculty, staff and community members. The first-time event will be from 3:30 to 7 p.m. Oct. 30 on the quad at Gadsden State’s Wallace Drive Campus.
“This is an opportunity to host our community on campus for something welcoming and fun,” said Laura Swann, director of Enrollment Services. “Traditionally, events like this are very well attended in our area, and we anticipate a good crowd.”
Participants at Candy with the Cardinals are encouraged to wear costumes. The event will include carnival games, such as a cake walk, pumpkin picking, face painting, witch hat toss, corn hole and more. Attendees can meet and take photos with Gadsden State athletes as well as explore Gadsden Fire Department trucks, enjoy music spun by a local DJ and receive candy from members of the Cardinal Foundation and the Etowah County Sheriff’s Department. Information booths about many of Gadsden State’s programs will also be at Candy with the Cardinals.
“We are going to have a good time while educating our community about what all Gadsden State has to offer,” Swann said.
The event is free. For more information, go to Candy with the Cardinals event page on Facebook or call 256-439-6861.
